Grease 2 (1982) - Rotten Tomatoes

Grease 2 (1982)



Critic Consensus: Grease 2 is undeniably stocked with solid songs and well-choreographed dance sequences, but there's no getting around the fact that it's a blatant retread of its far more entertaining predecessor.

Movie Info

This tuneful sequel to the popular musical tribute to the late 1950s, in 1961. A new student has enrolled in rockin' Rydell High. He is from England and immediately falls head-over-heels for the queen of the Pink Ladies Club, Stephanie. Unfortunately, she is only allowed to date T-Bird men. The determined Brit then gets his own bike and literally sweeps her off her feet. Music and romance ensues.more

Critic Reviews for Grease 2

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (6)

This movie just recycles Grease, without the stars, without the energy, without the freshness and without the grease.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

I don't mean to deny the self-evident second-rateness of the project, just to suggest that it's preferable to the third-rateness that has become the norm in the genre.

Top Critic

Grease 2 is the most serendipitous sequel in recent memory. It is an ingratiating, jubilant improvement on a crummy original.

Top Critic

Where this film has a decided edge on its predecessor is in the staging and cutting of the musical sequences.

Top Critic

Sheer energy, a handful of good tunes (including a great theme song from the Four Tops), and some very funny one-liners save the day.

Time Out
Top Critic

Grease 2 is dizzy and slight, with an even more negligible plot than its predecessor had. This time the story can't even masquerade as an excuse for stringing the songs together.

Audience Reviews for Grease 2

In an attempt to topple its predecessor, Grease 2 fails to concoct even a remotely decent storyline. The progressive, incoherent plot and faltering chemistry only taints the name of this famed musical. Arguably one the worse, if not, the worst sequel in the history of film. .5/5

An unnecessary and silly sequel to musical classic, Grease.

A horrible sequel to Grease, a classic musical. This one has very silly songs that don't have anything to do with the story. I hate it.
